About Christ Church

A spiritually strong, inclusive, progressive church

We are a strong, spiritually centered, diverse and inclusive community of seekers growing together in worship, music, healing, study and fellowship. v We are a mission church in the Episcopal Diocese of New Hampshire, part of The Episcopal Church, a member of the worldwide Anglican Communion. We are also affiliated with the Center for Progressive Christianity, creating an open and welcoming community of faith by expressing our approach to the practice of Christianity as outlined in The 8 Points outlined below.

What is Progressive Christianity?

By calling ourselves Progressive, we mean that we are Christians who... 1. Believe that following the path and teachings of Jesus can lead to an awareness and experience of the Sacred and the Oneness and Unity of all life; 2. Affirm that the teachings of Jesus provide but one of many ways to experience the Sacredness and Oneness of life, and that we can draw from diverse sources of wisdom in our spiritual journey; 3. Seek community that is inclusive of ALL people, including but not limited to: o Conventional Christians and questioning skeptics, o Believers and agnostics, o Women and men, o Those of all sexual orientations and gender identities, o Those of all classes and abilities; 4. Know that the way we behave towards one another is the fullest expression of what we believe; 5. Find grace in the search for understanding and believe there is more value in questioning than in absolutes; 6. Strive for peace and justice among all people; 7. Strive to protect and restore the integrity of our Earth; 8. Commit to a path of life-long learning, compassion, and selfless love.

Our Mission Statement

The mission of Christ Church is to share the light of Christ in the world. As progressive Christians we welcome all people into our sanctuary, regardless of race, economic circumstances, gender, sexual orientation, or religious background. We gather to worship, sing, celebrate, acknowledge common needs, be fed at God’s table and care, come and nurture one another. From there we go forth into the world to be active servants of the spirit of Jesus, ministering to those in need and taking God’s grace and peace into the wider community.
